Amanda Richardson 1. A good speaker must be knowledgeable on the subject that is being talked about. You need to know where you got your resources from and be able to discuss them clearly. When presenting a speech it is a good idea to dress nice and not wear something that is going to distract the audience. 2. I think that I have improved greatly since my first speech. I remember I was really nervous my first couple of speeches and read almost word for word from my note card. It still is hard for me to not stare at my note cards but, I think that is something that I have improved on and I will continue to improve on with my practice.

I didn’t seem to get as many comments about it on my last speech.

He was funny but very informative and I thought that he did a great job that day....
